Staff and faculty are invited to register for this self-care, healing and grounding offering. The sessions are designed through an equity and social justice lens, centering the needs of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community. Open yourself to this consciously inclusive approach to wellness. Join meditation/movement teacher Lissa Edmond as they guide you through 30-minute guided meditation practices and 45-minute gentle mindful movement sessions, with additional time before and after the sessions for checking in and connecting. The gentle movement sessions will integrate practices from qigong, yoga, mindful movement, and breath work.
